Year one, came solo, tent broke (big ass canvas wedge tent, center pole blow out, IBDave was somehow responsible), slept on a cot inside the carport. It was dusty. Really dusty.
Year two and three, tented in Kodaik cabins with nice shade, etc. Very comfy. 10x10 in 08, 10x14 in 09.
This year, the bus conversion will be complete so no more tenting it for us.
We invested the time and effort into the bus for living space for the simple reason that it sucks ass to drive 1800 miles in a slow ass bus and then roll in on not nearly enough sleep and shagged out from the 36ish hour drive and have to unpack half the bus to lay out the ground tarps, set up the carport, set up the tents, put all the shit in the tents, etc etc etc... And then, after 12, 13 days of building and tearing down the theme camp/village, take all of our personal gear down to repack and reload the bus.
This year, pull in, pop the air brakes, chock the wheels, put up the gennie smoke stack, give hello hugs and kisses, push some stuff out of the way and crawl into the luxurious king sized bed under the cool breeze of a combined total of 25k btu's of cooling power.
